I hope he just left "Boo-ing" Paris and went to England already, if he's going to stay. Like a good boy.
Get Well. Get Happy.

I just think he needs to stay healthy and win tennis matches, the results will come he's shown improvement in my eyes.
I have to agree with you Ryan. I saw some improvements in his game yesterday. Two successful drop shot winners and a BH DTL passing shot winner. I think when he gets healthy, he'll be rolling.

QUACK IT LOUD....QUACK IT PROUD!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK TO: ANDY, HAAS, MARDY, BRYANS, JAMES, DJOKOVIC, MOODIE, ROBBY, MOYA, SAFIN, GICQUEL

DAVIS CUP CHAMPS FOR 2007!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO USA!!!!!!!

I love that shot. It is one of my favourite in the whole game and it's nice, no, it's REALLY great that Andy can play it more than he used to. That gets a big from me.

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

Re: The "It will be a HEALTHY grass season" thread.

If all good things must come to an end, same thing applies to the bad things. It can only get better from here...hopefully...

Can't believe the RG site has posted transcript for all the other posted interviews except Andy's As if I need more reasons to be grumpy these days...

Re: The "It will be a HEALTHY grass season" thread.

Well he says something to that effect every year, doesn't he? I suppose he's just being honest. He obviously enjoys playing on grass. He also says something to the effect that he has a good shot at 3 out of the 4 GSs, and i think he keeps saying that despite his results sometimes saying otherwise!

Andy's game has been improving steadily, what Andy was lacking was confidence. Grass most certainly will give Andy confidence. For awhile I felt like Andy was rebounding from all those loses to Federer. After those loses he was rattled which lead to some bizarre results in the slams losing early to Johannson, Mutis, Acacsuso, Muller, Bagdadits, etc which I feel like really damaged Roddick's confidence, making him feel like he's not unbeatable anymore, it's not just the games best at their best who can beat him. This year he's been trying to find it, plain and simple everytime I think he's about to turn the corner, he has another bad loss due to injury or just lack of faith in his own game.

Winning breeds confidence, which inturn breeds more winning and more confidence...etc etc....Andy is going to win some matches in the grass season, he's going to get more confident. We will see where he can take it from there...

Re: The "It will be a HEALTHY grass season" thread.

yeah, his BH was surprisingly consistent yesterday and he went down the line a pleasantly surprising amount. But the defensive positioning will simply kill him on grass. I mean I think this goes without saying but he's just got to be really aggressive and that means standing on the baseline. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Andy just do it.
